The way I did this with function_input_iterator is by:

1. Getting in touch with the maintainers and working the
implementation out through the mailing list.

2. Preparing the required changes (as patches that can be
submitted/applied to existing code in the repository) which include:

  - The documentation.
  - Tests.
  - The actual code.

3. Wait for the maintainer to merge the changes implying acceptance
and then have it shepherded into a new Boost release.

Hope this helps.
